South Korea warmed up for Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against the United Arab Emirates with a 2-2 draw against Poland at Seoul World Cup Stadium.
Robert Lewandowski scored in the first half for the Euro 2012 co-hosts but two goals from Park Chu-young after the break put the Koreans in front. However, a late equaliser from Jakub Blaszczykowski ensured honours ended even.
The home side started brightly but fell behind just before the half-hour mark, when Blaszczykowski fired a fierce shot against the bar from 25 yards and Lewandowski headed in the rebound.
Park equalised for South Korea after 65 minutes when debutant Seo Jung-jin pulled the ball back from the byline for the Arsenal striker to blast home from close range. On 76 minutes Park sidefooted past Fabianski from the edge to put the hosts ahead, but with eight minutes remaining, a botched clearance from Cho Byung-kuk was intercepted by Blaszczykowski and he produced a cool finish.
Australia steamrolled their way to a 5-0 win over Malaysia with the Asian minnows offering little resistance as World Cup qualifying warm-up opponents at Canberra Stadium on Friday night.
Striker Josh Kennedy continued his stunning recent strike-rate with a first-half brace giving him seven goals in his last four games and 14 from 27 national team appearances. Fellow Japan-based striker Alex Brosque also bagged a double, while Luke Wilkshire netted the opener in the second minute as Australia racked up a 4-0 half-time lead.
"We had a good start from minute one and we moved the ball pretty well, had a good pace in our game, good positioning off the ball," Socceroos coach Holger Osieck said. "You see every team in the world who gets confronted with that gets kind of intimidated and that happened with the Malaysians as well.
"I think in a way they got caught by surprise with how we started. The good thing is, we didn't just start it, we maintained it."
Sanfrecce Hiroshima forward Tadanari Lee scored midway through the first-half as Japan beat Vietnam 1-0 at Homes Stadium in Kobe.
In a warm-up for their World Cup qualifier against Tajikistan, Japan boss Alberto Zaccheroni opted for a new 3-4-3 system but the hosts took time to settle. Nevertheless, the Asian champions went ahead in the 24th minute when Jungo Fujimoto latched onto a Makoto Hasebe pass in the area before feeding the unmarked Lee, who finished with his right foot.
Japan, however, still struggled to find any rhythm and Zaccheroni made changes at the break and reverted to their usual 4-2-3-1.
"In today's game I wanted to test a different system and play those who hadn't played much before,'' said Zaccheroni. "I think we saw good parts and bad parts. We improved our play over the course of the game but there are some parts that need to be fixed, such as precision in final passes.
"But I am not in a hurry to master the new system, and also those who hadn't played before did well today, which makes me feel confident that we are adding the depth to our squad.''
Brazil, meanwhile, rounded out the friendly action with a slender 1-0 win over Costa Rica.
Starlet Neymar scored his eigth goal in 14 appearances for Brazil to seal the victory in San Jose in a less than convincing display by the Selecao. The Santos striker pounced on a loose ball inside the area from a Dani Alves cross.
Any hopes of a Costa Rican comeback were crushed when defender Heiner Mora was dismissed, but Brazil were unable to add to their one goal advantage for the remainder of the second-half.
